and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a way, this victory was brought to you by the radical governors, who spent the last three years stumping all over the middle class in their states. there's something all of these governors have in common, i'm talking about john casey in ohio, chris christie in new jersey, rick snyder in michigan, tom corbett in pennsylvania, rick scott in florida. let's not forget bob mcdonnell in virginia. and of course, scott walker in washington. what do they all -- sorry, wisconsin. what do they all have in common? they pursued an agenda to limit the rights of workers in their states so they could balance the budget, but also break up the unions. their agenda, last night, was rejected by the people in their state. you know what they all got in common? all of their states went blue. i guess we could say, well, thank you, governors, for defining the republican party for us. it made voting a lot easier for a lot of americans, like these voters, the radical agenda of the right was defeated by thes

will be the united states of america. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today we're on the other side of history. last night we saw a statement election in america and it opens up a huge opportunity for democrats to move this country forward. this was the scene in chicago, the moment president obama supporters were told he secured enough electoral votes to be re-elected as the 44th president of the united states. president obama is not niaive about his place in history. the victory was a repudiation of the right wing agenda. also an affirmation of the president's vision for the country. >> what makes america exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit d

to see america get involved in this? >> it's an interesting and important question. few things. this wasn't planned but it was interesting the president and hillary clinton were in asia at the time that all this began happening because for some time now there has been an attempted pivot towards foreign policy away from the middle east and asia. as gaza shows that's still the world's hot spot and we have to be there. i do think, though, that there's going to be more pressure. the u.s. is not going to say quite this is your problem to the region, but there is going to be more pressure for egypt to get involved. we don't quite know what kind of a leader president morsi is yet. we're all watching and learning. egypt will have to be an important part of the solution. the door between egypt and gaza was pretty much shut during the mubarak era. despite morsi being a member of the muslim brotherhood. it's still pretty closed. egypt has 80 mill enpeople, many whom are are poor, i think they're probably on the fence about wanting to take responsibility for another 1.6, 1.8 people in gaza although i

think this one is unique. irng we' i think we're at a different time in america. we've never had an african-american president running against a mormon for president. that changes things. what was missing from those elections are all of this and also the internet. those two instrumentations, cable coverage and the internet and bloggers, have changed the dialogue in american presidential politics. to what end we'll find out tomorrow night. i think they'll have an impact. during those elections even though times were tough in many instances, there wasn't anything quite like what we've gone through in the last four years with economic downturn, which was the greatest since the great depression. when president obama took office, a lot of people thought, including his principle economic advisers, they could emerge from it in 2009 at some point. we were told the recession was over. it turns out it was not a v, it was an l. it went down and went straight across and went across and astayed across. this is unique. >> this election is about fear, great fear. both sides making the other peo
a person in america. mr. mcconnell does not see it that way. on the political wire the romney's campaign would have could have should have transition website today. surely, this was not supposed to go live until mr. romney actually won the election. the campaign did not wait. they presumably accidentally put it up, a transition website for president-elect romney, how to apply for a job with the new romney administration. looks like because they screen shot it before they finally did take it down, looks like the romney folks had a transition motto all ready to go, a slogan, repeated slogan on the website is smaller, simpler, smarter. when republican speaker of the house john boehner gave his first post election press conference what he thought should happen in this country given the results of the election almost like he thought he was speaking in the context of president-elect romney and smaller simpler smaller branded transition. >> by working together and creating a fairer simpler cleaner tax code, moving to fairer simpler system energized by a simpler cleaner fairer tax code -- >> sim

are putting a lot of effort to make great products, but also to make sure that everybody in america knows how committed they are to making cars here in america. so you don't scare hard work and americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. that's not leadership. when i first made the decision to rescue the auto industry, i knew it wasn't popular. and despite the fact that one out of eight jobs in ohio are connected to the auto industry in some way, it wasn't even popular here in ohio. but i knew it was the right thing to do. i knew betting on american workers was the right thing to do. i knew betting on america was the right thing to do. that paid off. it paid off where gm is investing hundreds of millions of dollars in their auto plant. it paid off in toledo where chrysler is adding more than 1,000 new jobs on a second shift. not in china, but right here in ohio. right here in the united states of america. and so one of the things, when you're talking to your friends and neighbors, they're trying to make up their minds the last few days. think about tha
that we're headed in the wrong direction. so these jobs numbers were good news for america, they were good news for the obama campaign but bad news for the romney campaign. they take whatever win he had in this bailout. >> krystal, when we look at the polls, the president is up in the swing states, up by 5 in wisconsin, more than 4 in pennsylvania, over 2 in ohio, 2 in iowa, and new hampshire and a slight edge in colorado. governor romney is ahead by a little over a point in florida and just barely beating obama in virginia. so if these polls prove right, the president edges out in the swing states and is re-elected? >> exactly. and i would look at iowa and wisconsin. romney has to win one of those states. if he wins ohio, then he has a shot. if he can't get ohio, he still has a plausible path if he can get wisconsin. what has to be really troubling to the romney campaign is we're seeing more and more polling in those states and they are not moving in his direction and the president's turnout particularly in ohio has been very strong, very robust. so i think those two states in particular
